Mr. Merchant: Do you know that newspaper advertising is one of the most powerful .invisible hands that pushes and persuades persons to pa- tronize your store ? The last time we saw our genial friend Mr. Tom Reed of Pasadena, who is visiting here, he was making a bird cage. Someone asked Tom what he was doing, and he replied "Making birdcages for old maids." The bungalettes removed from Cres- cent avenue to make room for the new theatre building have been located in Villa Park, and quite a number of new bungalettes are also being built there. The present park grounds will soon be filled. The showers last week have brought up the grass on the hillsides. Where sheltered by last year's growth the tiny shoots are two Or three inches in length. On bare ground the cold nights are retarding the growth of the blades, though the roots are spreading. With a few more timely showers the hill- sides will be green by Christnaas. Ott's Grocery has purchased a new Ford chassis from the Hubbard Auto Sales Co., represented in Avalon by Captain Claude Walton. McMinn and James, of the Avalon Transfer Co., have also placed orders for two new trucks, to take care of their increased business. "ALEX" AND "CHARLEY" ARE IN BUSINESS. The Avalon Radio and Electric Shop "has secured the contract for wiring the new school building, and several other new structures that are now under construction by the Santa Catalina lsland Company. Mr. R. S. Alexander and Mr. Charles Shewmaker, two local young men, have recently purchased the electrical supply business former- ly owned by Mr. Flannigan, at 607 Crescent avenue. Alex says: "Tell 'era I said we'll install any kind of electric fixtures, and that Charley Shewmaker is a bear when it comes to repairing radio sets." Catalina will give you the rest of your life. Come to Catalina. SCOUTING IN AVALON Friends of Mr. H. Benjamin Robi- son will be interested to know that he has been appointed Field Executive of Pasadena District Council, which in- cludes Avalon. Mr. Trask and Mr. Robison have planned so that he can still continue with the Avalon scout work, at least for a while. In the future scout meetings will be held on Monday. The Cubs will meet at 3:30 every Monday afternoon, and the land scouts will meet at 4:30. The sea scout meeting until their boat ar- rives, will be held at 6:30. It may be necessary once in a while to change the meeting day, but not often. Three new scouts passed their ten- derfoot test this week, and were ad- mitted to troop No. 1. They are Bert Scott, Edgar Harrison and Glenn Hoover. Roy Smith passed his tenderfoot test and will soon be admitted to the mus- ter roll of the sea scout ship. The boys have found out that the surest way to keep Mr. Robison here is to get busy and work on their scout work. Mr. Robison will be in charge of the big seamanship reunion of about eighty (80) scouts who took the course in seamanship while in camp this summer. Mr. A. B. Bonnar, an old sailor, will be chief of the galley, and a real ship's supper of hurrican stew, hard tack and plum duff will be served. In the even- ing a fine program will be given on the quarter deck. Signal officer, Malcolm Renton, of the local sea scout ship, will give a demonstration of the use of code flags. The invitations to this affair were printed by sea scout Thee. Sierks, who is working on his merit badge in print- ing. On- Friday, the' 21st, all scouts of Avalon who are members of the Tribe" of Torqua will go to Camp Hunting- ton to attend the Annual Pew-Wow. This is one of the big events of the year in scouting. .It has been suggested by Mr. Robi- son that a new scout uniforan makes a dandy Christmas present; also a year's subscription to "Boys Life," the official Boy Scout magazine, which every scout should have. Price, $2.00 per 2tear. WHAT" ABOUT THIS? Hen.
